  1. Toe/Finger bone?

    I found this half of a phalanx bone in the upper Dinosaur Park Formation. I’m wondering whether it belongs to a turtle or a small theropod. Would any of you guys know what it is? Thanks!
  2. Kem Kem Claw and Phalanx

    Seller doesn't know what it's from beyond claw and phalanx from Kem Kem in Morocco. Price is pretty good, so it tempts me if anyone has any idea what it's from. I have seen these crop up as raptor claws or deltadromeus claws elsewhere--which to me seems more speculative putting a name to it than it actually being from one of those species. But if anyone knows anything, that would be great.
  3. Big Brook, NJ Toe bone (Phalanx) ID

    Here are all my finds from big brook. WHAT A DAY ...arrowheads,toe bones, big shark teeth, misc I just need the toe bone ID
  4. Raptor toe bone

    http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/83952-toe-bone-possible-predator/ Very interesting toe bone. It seems very similar to the phalanx in the above thread. However it is longer and not as robust. While no guarantees ever, I find few horse teeth, but the ratio is 10 pre_Equus to 1 Equus. Definitely Pliocene/Miocene indicators.
  5. Equus - Seeking confirmation

    Found this bone in the Peace River early last week. I believed it to be a mammal toe bone or something similar. After hunting for comparisons here, on line and from texts I have on hand I believe it to be an Equus medial phalanx. The size in millimeters is approximately 40.1 X 40.3 x 23.5. I would appreciate any input confirming or pointing me in another direction. Thanks for taking a look!
  6. Pteranodon wing display

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Pteranodon Sp. Logan County, Kansas Niobrara form. Smokey Hill chalk Santonian-Campanian, late Cretaceous Im not exactly sure which bones they are, and I’d appreciate any input about it, but based on the significant difference between the 2 connecting bones, I’d imagine it’s one of the metacarpals and the connecting 1st phalanx. (I’m very proud of the display/storage box I made for it. Removed box innards and carved tightly fitted slots in padding from an old crystal wine glass box. Who says having random stuff sitting around for decades is a bad thing!?)
  7. Pteranodon wing (reverse side close up)

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Pteranodon Sp. Logan County, Kansas Niobrara form. Smokey Hill chalk Santonian-Campanian, late Cretaceous Sadly this one broke while removing it from packaging, even with great care. Thankfully a beautifully clean break with no fragments or even visible dust! Im not exactly sure which bones they are, and I’d appreciate any input about it, but based on the significant difference between the 2 connecting bones, I’d imagine it’s one of the metacarpals and the connecting 1st phalanx. (I’m very proud of the display/storage box I made for it. Removed box innards and carved tightly fitted slots in padding from an old crystal wine glass box.

  11. pteranodon wing

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Pteranodon Sp. Logan County, Kansas Niobrara form. Smokey Hill chalk Santonian-Campanian, late Cretaceous Sadly the phalanx(?) broke a bit during unpacking, despite the extreme care. Very happily however, it was all perfectly clean, without a single fragment, or even visible speck of dust! Im not exactly sure which bones they are, and I’d appreciate any input about it, but based on the significant difference between the 2 connecting bones, I’d imagine it’s one of the metacarpals and the connecting 1st phalanx.

  12. Bissekty toe bones

    Hi I know that there are almost no publications about the dinosaurs from the Bissekty formation. However, I was wondering if it is still possible to narrow down these two bones? I am specificatlly interested in the left one. Could it be a Tyrannosaur or Therizinosaur phalanx?
  13. Bison Toe Bone?

    Hello! I recently came back from a trip to the Netherlands, and while beach combing in the North Sea, I found this bone. I've been really curious as to what it may be, and even joined this site in hopes of discovering what it may have belonged too. I believe it's a phalanx bone, possibly of a bison from the pleistocene? That's really just a guess based off of others' pictures, so please, any info you can give would be wonderful! Sorry I don't have a ruler on hand for proper measurements, but it is roughly 8 cm in length and 3 cm in width. I put the lighter there to maybe give an idea of size
  14. Spinosaurid hand phalanx?

    Hi, Wanted to ask whether this hand phalanx bone resembles a Spinosaurid hand phalanx or whether it might be something else like from a croc or another theropod group (it looks somewhat hollow). It is quite a large bone at about 24.5cm in length and is from the kem kem (it has also had some small repair work). Thanks in advance.

  16. something in the way it moved

    ajslocomeigenshmathemaquantmethodrose93.11Macleod.pdf Norman Macleod and Kenneth D.Rose: Inferring locomotor behavior in Paleogene mammals via eigenshape analysis American Journal of Science,v.293-A,1993 Given that the Paleogene was a time of incipient mammal diversification...
  17. Last week I was on holiday in the Netherlands and found some nice things, especially shark teeth ! I was at the area of Antwerp, in Cadzand, in Vlissingen and at the Zandmotor near Den Haag. In this topic I want to show my finds from my visit at the Zandmotor. The Zandmotor is artificial peninsula, constructed as part of the Dutch coastal defense system. The sand originates from about 10 kilometers offshore, and contains bones of various land mammals from the Quaternary period. On my visit I found some bone fragments, two shark teeth and some more things .... Here are two pictures of the found location: Firstly I want to show my best bone from there. Its an 4 cm long Phalanx and I have no idea from which animal it comes from. I hoped that I would find some more bones and maybe even a mammal tooth but maybe next time Then secondly I was very happy about my two shark teeth I found because they seem to be very rare there. Although they are quite worn The first one is 3 cm long: And the second one is 2 cm long and damaged on the other side: Another very common find there are fish vertebrae. The ones I found: They are not big (the biggest one is 2.5 cm long) Furthermore I found a beautiful tooth plate (?) of a fish: (3.6 cm long) And last but not least two Pectenids: Some more reports will follow (maybe in other threads...) Hope you enjoyed my pictures and thanks for viewing !!!
  18. Tiny Kem Kem toe bone

    Hi all, I got this puny little phalanx from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco for a small price at the fossil fair. The seller said he didn't know what it came from. I am aware that Kem Kem bone ID is very very difficult, so if I don't get a species answer that is no problem! I would like to know though whether it's croc/dino/ptero, preferably a bit more precise too. What are your thoughts? If more pictures are needed, I will gladly make them. Thanks in advance, Max
  19. A Large Toe Bone

    I found this bone in the same spot that I found a Mastodon Tooth yesterday , which obviously does not mean a lot.. It is a toe bone and decent size , about 2.5 inches. Hopefully someone will recognize.
  20. Hell Creek - Large toe bone

    Hi Below please find some pictures of a toe bone that was found in the Hell Creek formation. Unfortunately I do not have a straight top view or front view. Given the size of 15cm (6 inch), is it save to assume that this is a t-rex phalanx?
  21. Mammal Phalanx bone ?

    Hi there, I pulled up this bone out of my screen on Friday and was curious what you thought. I started thinking it was near an ankle or wrist but the closest I have come so far is a horse medial phalanx. At least it looks like a similar function/position. This bone though is asymmetrical so I don't think it is from a horse or Equus sp. The creek cuts through a Late Oligocene marine and then a re-worked Pliocene/Pleistocene. I have been looking at references for giant armadillos but it would be great if someone more familiar with mammal bones might have a better clue .... I am missing images from the side. Thanks, Brett Example Horse medial phalanx
  22. Hey all I found this little phalanx(?) at Sharktooth Hill. Can You help Me identify it? Scale bar is 2 cm. Thank Y'all for the help. Tony
  23. This is a proximal manual phalanx of Allodesmus kernensis from digit 1 (thumb). I found this phalix on a trip to the pay to dig site while looking for shark teeth.
  24. Medial Phalanx

    5 years back, I found a small bone from a jaguar that increased my respect for small bones and started me down the identification process. It has a spot for claw retraction and overall a medial phalanx can be IDed as such. Fast forward to yesterday. I have been visiting the Peace River and connecting creeks, trying to find places to hunt without much success. DEEP, FAST, FULL of gators. But I am persistent and found access and even a few fossils: an Equus earbone, a nice hemi upper tooth and an unknown toe bone plus a smattering of other shark and Ray teeth. Now I can recognize a Medial Phalanx although it is only 1/2 the size of the Jaguar. I realize that it is Harry, Nate, and those other Florida toe bone hunters who find this interesting. But it does give me an opportunity to show off this: Small but almost perfect out of the clay layer... My 2017-2018 Season has STARTED!!!!.
